This months Glossybox promised to be good enough to eat (please don’t actually ) and it delivered. This box is in collaboration with Bella Younger, more commonly known as Deliciously Stella.

Unani Illuminate Milk Cleanser (Full Size) – RRP £14

Not tested on animals

This is a gentle cleansing milk which helps to remove makeup and impurities from your skin. When I first read cleansing milk I was worried its consistency would be like water, however this is the perfect balance between not too thick or not too runny!

I couldn’t wait to try this product out and it did not disappoint, it felt very natural on the face and left my skin feeling fresh due to its natural oils. On the downside I wasn’t a fan of the smell personally, but as the product itself was a pleasure I can look past that. As it’s such a gentle natural cleanser I would recommended this for an AM cleanse and not as a heavy makeup remover.

Spa to You Konjac Sponge (Full Size) – RRP £7.99

Anything that includes the word spa in its product name is instantly a winner for me.  This is ultimately a deep cleansing sponge made out of organic konjac plant fibre.

They say the product can be used to cleanse, moisturise and exfoliate all in one which is useful. Its recommended for daily usage and will claim to bring back the glow to your skin. They advise you replace the sponge every 2-3 weeks which would be a bit of a pain (not to mention pricey) so I think I will be using this as more of an exfoliating treatment now and again.

The Balm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Single Eyeshadow (Sample from a palette) – RRP £34

Not tested on animals.

I’m a big fan of The Balm as a brand so I was very excited to recieve this product in my Glossybox. The color is called Matt Moskowitz and is a matte aubergine toned eye shadow, just one of nine in the whole palette. Whilst this sample is adorably cute it can be hard to work with eye shadow this tiny, but it gives you an idea of the quality you will find in the full sized palette.

Nip + Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser (Sample Size) – RRP £19.95

Not tested on animals.

I was a bit dubious to try this product out as to me kale belongs in salad and not on my face, but for the purpose of the review I gave it a try.

This moisturiser is a superfood mix of kale, watercress and almond oil which will enrich and protect your skin. It also contains Aloe Vera and shea butter to smooth the skin. Whilst it has some amazing ingredients and it’s smell is refreshing,unfortunately the shea butter makes the formula too rich for my oily skin.

Vitamasques Manuka Honey Face Mask (Full Size) – RRP £3.99

This Korean face mask is made with extracts of manuka honey and uses a triple layer sheet technoly (Korean invention) for absorption. Based on the ingredients in this mask it should leave your skin feeling radiant and energized and I cannot wait to use it. They recommend you use one of there face masks once a week, and at £3.99 I wouldn’t object.

Verdict

This months Glossybox contained a heavy skincare line, so if skincare isn’t your thing I wouldn’t recommend this months box to you. This box hasn’t been their most exciting box as I didn’t make any brand discoveries however it is one that will be of use.

Favourite product: Unani Illuminate Milk Cleanser
